We got a room that looked out toward the Plaza. While the view was nice, you get a lot of street noise, not only from the traffic, but there is a bakery with outdoor seating next door and conversations can be loud. If we stay there again, I'd ask for a garden view room. Our room was very pretty with a "wow factor" to it.

The staff was friendly, especially Christina who speaks fluent English and helped us with ideas for day trips. She sent us to Rothenburg which was only a half an hour by train from Ansbach and was wonderful.

The hotel has a small elevator which was wonderful when we needed to get our luggage up the stairs. Their breakfast room is delightful and breakfast is good. If I ever find myself in Ansbach again, I'd stay at Hotel Platengarten again.

Room Tip: If you come in by train, take the street that runs in front of the Post Office (big yellow building to your right) and that street takes you right to the hotel.

Dear Guests,
we do so appreciate your lovley review of our hotel and our staff. We 're happy you felt comfortable in our house and were satisfied with our service, in special with Christina....will forward your kudos and I think you made her day :-)

The old windows facing the street have been exchanged approx. half a year ago with new, sound-damping windows, due to the traffic-sounds and people during the day.
With closed windows the rooms are nicely quiet.
However we would love to offer you one of our rooms with a beautiful view to the city park the next time you should plan a trip to Ansbach.
Thank you for your critic and we hope to welcome you soon again as guests in the Hotel Platengarten.
with warmest regards
Ursula Butschal

I spent in the hotel Platengarten only night. The Hotel is very nice furnished and like it is in Germany often, very clean. I booked 2 double (98€/night each) rooms for four men with separated beds, because, there were not possible to get 4 single rooms a 100km around. The first surprise was, that the beds were only double beds... The restaurant in the hotel was closed (evidently for longer period). I bought some beers at the desk. What a surprise, when we realize, the the beer is after durability... The rooms in the hotel are very nice, there is sofa with chairs, a table and TV in one room, the bed is in other room. Sleeping quality is very good, the hotel is quiet, beds are comfortable. The breakfast was adequate as well as the personal. You can park for free before the hotel from 18,00 to 9,00, the hotel itself does not have any apropriate parking.
Generally I would rank the hotel good, and probably choice it next time again.

Dear Guest,
thank you for taking the time to post a review of your stay in our house on www.tripdavisor.com.
Furthermore we´d like to thank you for your lovely compliments and also your constructional critic.
It is right that our Restaurant is not open on a daily basis; however we do offer to host bigger groups (for example birthday and christmas partys or class reunions). Our staff would is always happy to give recommendations for excellent Restaurants near by.
Unfortunatley, like we have explained you during your check-in, we didn´t have any double rooms with seperate standing beds free when your reservation was made over a reservation system.
We do try to live up to the standards and wishes of our valued guests.
Please accept our apologies, as a small token of our appreciation, due to the inconvenience during your stay, we´d like to offer you an upgrade for your next stay in our house and hope you will enjoy the fresh beer from the small brewery Spalt.
We´d look forward to welcoming you back soon, to Ansbach
Very Best Regards,
Ursula Butschal and the team of the Hotel Platengarten

We stayed in a double room suite. The room was wonderful, very spacious with a separate bedroom, sitting room, and large bathroom. The room was clean and bright with lots of natural light and well appointed for any length of stay. There was closet space, a wonderful shower and bath, heated floors in the bathroom and nice bathroom extras (like a heated towel rack and quality hair dryer). The breakfast was just as well appointed as the room with varied offerings, including homemade nectarine/kiwi jam. The staff was as helpful and friendly. The location is perfect for walking to Altstadt and the palace.
If I were to return to Ansbach, I would definitely stay at Platengarten.

We stayed for 4 nights. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Enjoyed the breakfast. We were visiting our son stationed at the base in Katterbach. We were easily able to day trip on the train due to the close proximity of the Hotel to the Bahnhof. If we go back to Ansbach it is a no brainer...we will stay here again.

Located jus in front of the baroque Residenz in Ansbach, very close to the Hofgarten and the city centre, this hotel is the perfect place to stay in Ansbach. I had a very quiet and newly refurbished room which was quite pleasant. The staff is very friendly and speaks English. The owners are just wonderful. The breakfast was just perfect as well with a large choice. As you may understand, my stay was very enjoyable thans to the Hotel Platengarten
